About This Game

Uprising44: The Silent Shadows combines third-person action play with real-time strategy. It is a unique combination of the two modes of play, and has an in-depth and interesting story-line which has not yet been used in WWII computer games – the greatest civilian Uprising against Nazi occupying forces – the Warsaw Uprising. It is a story of the Silent Shadows - forerunners of modern day special forces - paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines to organize resistance and use diversionary tactics in the fight against the forces of the Third Reich. An appropriate audio-visual setting combined with cover system (an excellent, proven method of game play), the story-line, and diverse settings ensure a dynamic and enjoyable game not only for players familiar with this type of theme, but also those merely wanting casual entertainment.

Action Mode

Play through an over-the-shoulder perspective gives a sense of reality to small groups of soldiers fighting in the tight confines of a city. You venture through buildings, cellars, streets, ruins and underground canals and take part in seemingly real skirmishes. You have available to use 16 types of weapons, depending on the tactics you choose. You can take cover, give orders to comrades, fight at close quarters, or at a distance - to get advantage over a superior number of the enemy.

RTS Mode

You lead groups of uprisers that take part in heavy fighting on the streets of Warsaw. You as a leader will have to think strategically and improvise in quick changing situations of battle.

Key Game Features:

  • First independent computer game that is based on the Warsaw Uprising
  • An in-depth, inspiring story-line based on the greatest civilian uprising of WW II
  • A unique combination of TPP game play and real-time strategy.

This game was a great idea on paper, but not in reality. This game should be changed to Early Access. There are levels, that you cannot get past, either due to its glitches or complexity, crashes constantly. Also there is no save/load feature. There is no tutorial, nor is there a list of commands. This game does not have checkpoints, so guess what, if you die, or in RTS battles your squad dies, you lose. I appologize if this review is harsh, however...

What an utterly horrible, horrible game. I can't find one good thing about it. Bad controls, lots of bugs, and just poor execution all-around. Even their promo video shows bullets clipping on a wall (0:21). Seriously, guys. Don't buy this game.

do not reccommend at all, if you simply watch the cynical brits review on youtube it explains everything wrong with the game, he takes the words right out of my mouth, my only regret besides actually buying this game, is the fact that i didnt watch the video before buying this game, which would have prevented me from wasting money.

There is nothing good about this game. ♥♥♥♥ AI, barley functioning shooting, an unfucintioning cover system, and lackluster graphics. In most cases, id like to say at least ONE good thing about this game, but I can't,
DONT BUY THIS ♥♥♥♥!
Who knows, maybe it gets better after chapter 2, but I cant get past that part, because it crashes too often

This would have been a decent game.

If it was released in the early 2000's.

The clunky gameplay, poor AI, shoddy graphics and bugs plethora make this game seem incredibly dated.

Why Devs? Why would you release a game this filled with bugs? I could get by the shoddy gameplay and the less than desirable cover system, but the bugs man, the bugs. It's crashed on me multiple times and sometimes the controls stick when you're forced to pause during the tutorial. Don't get me wrong, the idea is a really good one, I just wish they had put a little more effort into its excecution

Great, interesting concept, poor execution.
AI is stunned, the RTS part is horrible and pointless.

I had to put a couple of more hours into it...but UGGHHHH!!!!!
The RTS part is the worst POS I've ever experienced.
Whoever came up with the 'binoculars' interface should be kicked squarely in the nuts.
USELESS and stupid waste of time.

This one gets unistalled immediately.

The game itself was a good idea, you run to cover, you shoot, you run some more, you shoot some more, you do one of the other things but apart from that the game is bad. The game in its current state may provide light enjoyment for some people, but if you are expecting something great, you will be dissapointed. Graphics are like something from 2005 and the enemies move in the same way. Also it does not provide much of a challenge, unless you are trigger happy then it might be a challenenge finding ammo. However if this game was updated to something that would pass as a modern game then i would recommend it but right now its just not worth it.

Das Spiel ist echt nicht zu empfehlen, maus steuerung scheisse, level sind nicht gut angepasst und schon bei der 3. Mission wo man zum MG läuft kein bock mehr gehabt.
Fazi: 30 Minuten gespielt, kein spielspaß und lahme story. Grafik texturen sind billig.

This is the Worst game I have ever played for the pc. Bugs; the AI is absalutely clueless, meaning that this ai is as blind as a bat. not knowing where you are causing it to shoot everywhere around you and missing every single shot for at least 5 seconds if you are standing still, some don't even shoot at you.
Still not convincing you, what about the graphics right? Nope, with graphics at this level it's as decent as the early 2000's. You will probably notice the poor lip-syncing. The voice acting is quite poor. Even one of the charecters, named Smithy gives this game an evil eye.
(The charecters, due to graphics) seem to have no emotions, and are hard to relate and attach to. The best part of this game is that it doesn't cost you to much money, but trust me, you have better things to spend that money on. 1/10
